Ambrose ministry degrees approved for Nazarene ordination
Thursday, October 21, 2010
Calgary, Alberta, Canada
In September 2010, the Canadian Regional Course of Study Advisory Committee (RCOSAC) unanimously approved the Bachelor of Theology and Bachelor of Ministry degrees at Ambrose University College (formerly Canadian Nazarene University College). On October 7, 2010, the International Course of Study Advisory Committee (ICOSAC) validated these degrees by a unanimous vote. This endorsement means the Ambrose Bachelor of Theology and Bachelor of Ministry degrees (Church Ministry and Youth Ministry tracks) now fulfill the educational requirements for ordination in the Church of the Nazarene.

The Canadian RCOSAC is responsible for identifying the minimal educational standards for ordination on the Canadian region and develops procedures for approving the ministerial education programs in Canada (including the degrees offered at Ambrose). The Canadian RCOSAC members are: Rose Sorzano, Gary Nawrocki, Doug Herbert, Robert Snow, Riley Coulter, Clair MacMillan, and Terry Fach.

Terry Fach, regional education coordinator for Canada, reports: "I want to commend the efforts of Dr. Bernie Van De Walle, who prepared many of the key articulation documents for the Ambrose programs validation, and the regional committee, for their role in this significant achievement. The validation helps our Nazarene students, our churches, and our Boards of Ministry across the country. We can be confident that Ambrose now offers Nazarene ministry preparation degrees whose quality exceeds anything previously available to Canadian Nazarenes."
